Norwich City v Liverpool, Saturday 17:30
Although many may not have called it at the beginning of the season, Norwich City are gunning for the same place finish as Liverpool and could gain a considerable advantage on Saturday, however Bet365 place the Merseysiders as odds on favourites to come out on top at Carrow Road along with the chance for free betting.
At the moment, Liverpool are just three points ahead of the Canaries and sit in eighth spot but risk falling further towards the bottom half of the table if performances don’t improve soon.
Despite their Carling Cup victory and a place in the FA Cup final, Kenny Dalglish’s men have had a miserable league campaign compared to their usual standards and with just four points between eighth and 14th place, are in a race to even finish amongst the top ten.
The Reds have won just one of their last six matches, losing four and drawing one making them the fifth worst Premier League side in terms of recent form.
Norwich aren’t too far better off in that aspect but have looked decent going forward this season, something Liverpool can hardly boast.
The Norfolk outfit have failed to net in just 18% of their home matches this campaign and while defending has posed an issue, Paul Lambert’s side have managed to get by on their ability to score for the most part.
Lambert has a relatively clean bill of health and has jut Daniel Ayala and Zak Whitbread as doubts for Saturday’s match.
It was announced during the week that Charlie Adam would be absent for the rest of the season due to a knee injury but after returning to training last week, Jack Robinson is hoping to make the squad.
While Norwich may not be the side to finish above Liverpool, Everton, Fulham and West Brom are all champing at the bit to do just that and Liverpool would do well not concede at Carrow Road this weekend.
